Hi. After some thought I've decided to stop working on this mod for the foreseeable future. If anyone wants to take over the concept then they are welcome to contact me. After updating my PC I can now get acceptable performance with AI games from starting the game from within the BF2 menu interface. This means I've lost my original reason for working on this; to "scratch that itch" of wanting better bot performance. However I've had fun testing some of the concepts. I also think I've clearly shown that running the AI on a dedicated server leads to improved bot performance and behavior, at least on lower spec machines. It remains to be seen if there's still a need for this. I won't shut down the mod just yet. There's a chance that I may come back to it for ArmA 3 as I'm currently setting up a ArmA 3 server on Google Compute. ArmA 3 suffers from the same problem BF2 does. AI performance is bad when run from within the client. This is getting less noticeable with BF2 as people's CPU speeds increase, but ArmA 3 is still a pig when it comes to hardware requirements, so you never know HABAI may be reborn as an ArmA 3 mod of some kind. So thanks for the all the encouragement and interest ! Sorry that I couldn't deliver a final "product" but these things don't always work out. At least I gave it a shot !

Hi. I really wish you would work on HABAI for ArmA 3. If you succeeded in making the AI run on a separate core alone, that would be awesome. The performance in ArmA games is very limited by the AI numbers. Good job, and thank you for your efforts!
